I am entering my 21st year in education, and my 8th at Westlake. Prior to working in administration, I taught science to 7th, 8th and 9th graders for seven years. I was the Dean of Students at Thornton Middle for five years before becoming an Asst. Principal there for two years. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Colorado and a Master’s in Educational Administration from Denver University. I have a son and a daughter at home and, in her former life, my wife worked as an instructor in the Outdoor Education Program. In my free time I enjoy movies, hiking and playing ice hockey. I am proud to be on staff at Westlake and am looking forward to helping assure Westlake students get the best education possible.
